In the past, replacing struts required specialized tools to compress, remove and transfer the old spring and mount.  Pre-assembled with all new parts, our complete strut and spring assemblies make this job much quicker and easier for the do-it-yourself mechanic.

Each complete strut & spring assembly contains:

  • Upper Strut Mount
  • Strut Bearing
  • Coil Spring
  • Boot & Bumper Kit
  • Gas-charged Strut 
Direct Fit

Direct fit replacement; not only will the part fit correctly, but it will function correctly.  Many competitors combine applications to cut down on the amount of parts they have to carry. This can result in the following issues: incorrect vehicle height, poor response and an uncomfortable ride.

Rigorously Tested

Rigorously tested and made from higher quality materials than the competition. Our parts are built to have a longer life in any environment or road conditions.

Pre-Assembled

Pre-assembled, loaded strut & spring assemblies allow for a quicker, safer install than replacing with just bare struts. 

Trouble-Free Install

Trouble-free install includes the matched parts needed to get the job done. New mounts, bearings, springs and hardware will provide a better ride for your vehicle and save you time from not having to do the job again because a used part failed afterwards.

Matched Parts

When you buy the kit pre-built by us, you can be sure that the parts are matched for optimum performance.  Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same, so mixing and matching can result in fit issues and potentially decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

When you buy one of our kits, you not only save money over buying the parts individually, but you also save time having to search for all of the different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Lifetime Warranty

This item is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. In the event this item should fail due to manufacturing defects during intended use, we will exchange the part free of charge (excludes shipping charges) for the original purchaser. Please keep your invoice for proof of this warranty.

  1. step : Remove the top of the strut (1:07)
    • Lift the hood and secure it.
    • Remove the three 13 mm nuts in the engine bay securing the top of the strut.
    • Keep two of them loosely threaded just to keep the strut from flopping around while you work on the bottom half.
  2. step : Remove the wheels (1:37)
    • Use a 19 mm lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts.
    • Raise and secure the vehicle.
    • Remove the lug nuts and set the wheel aside.
  3. step : Remove the stabilizer link (2:03)
    • Use an 18 mm wrench and an 18 mm socket and ratchet to remove the stabilizer link.
    • A breaker bar can help get it loose, using the wrench to secure the back of the bolt.
  4. step : Remove the bottom of the strut (3:01)
    • Apply some penetrating oil to the two 18 mm nuts securing the strut to the steering knuckle.
    • Work the bolts out of the steering knuckle and strut.
    • Unthread the top two nuts and pull the strut down and out.
  5. step : Install the new strut (4:35)
    • Put the strut into place and thread one of the bolts through the bottom of the strut and the steering knuckle.
    • This secures the strut so you can secure the top three nuts.
    • Torque the two bolts at the bottom to 100 ft lbs.
    • Reassemble the stabilizer link.
    • Replace the wheel, using a star pattern on the lug nuts.
    • Torque the top three nuts to 20 ft lbs.
    • Torque the lug nuts to 100 ft lbs.

Everything fits nicely
I must admit I was a bit hesitant ordering these parts online but it was a wonderful price and I took a chance.
I received them in one day and had them installed two days later. I have no complaints. Instead of a creaky ride with sounds I could not identify. Now it's like riding in a new car.

I would highly recommend 1A Auto for any car parts you need. It was a pleasure doing business with them.

Took only 4 business days to arrive from purchased date. Struts went on easy with no problems. Fit was perfect. Shocks went on even easier than struts. Rides like new now. First time ordering from 1aauto, I've always seen there youtube channel and figured I would give them a try and they are top notch. Best price by far. Everyone else wants 120 to 150 for one strut, and here you get 2 struts and 2 shocks for 175. You cant beat that. Didn't have to use their customer service department but I'm sure it's great too from other reviews I've read on here. I would recommend this product and company.

Excellent Products
This was my first order with this website and I was very skeptical. I ordered these shocks and struts for my 2009 Cobalt SS. I was expecting this to come in at approximately a week or so but to my surprise it came in 2 days. The fit of this was excellent and was very easy. I did not have an issue intalling these at all. Overall this was a very pleasant experience and I am very happy with my purchase.
